Nicknames: Beautiful;), Babe

Age: 12 years old

Gender: Gelding

Height: 15 hands

Color: dark brown. His mane is a little lighter brown with blonde highlights! <3

Type of Riding: mostly trail riding or riding through the neighbor farmer's fields and occasionally we go through a creek that is near our place
mostly bareback but if I do use a saddle it's western

My Horse's Achievements: YES! He learned how to run really smooth so I can stand up on his back while he's galloping!! :)

My Horse's Favorite Things To Do: Roll in the pasture after I hose him down or give him a bath;), gallop down long fields if I don't hold him back, and eat grass!! ;)

Pet Peeves: Any type of flapping plastic, or when anybody runs up from behind him, and cows;)

My Horse's motto: If you shoot for the moon and miss, you will land among the stars!! <3 So in other words, if we set out goals REALLY high and don't quite reach them, we will at least get pretty high! :)

How We Met

Six years ago, I had a Shetland pony named Blaze whom I ABSOLUTELY adored!! He was so sweet and so gentle with little children! Then we had a barn fire...:( He died in it. I was sooooo devastated! I mourned him for so long. I didn't even want to ride much! But we rebuilt our barn and I was older then so I didn't need a pony anymore, so we got a horse named Sligo. But he was an idiot!! He bucked like crazy and was mean in the barn! I was still mourning over Blaze so I wasn't in the mood to deal with this horse! So my parents sold him and we bought Gator.:) Right at first we weren't too close because I was scared that something would happen to him also. But I started riding him more and more! Now he's one of my best friends! I ride as much as I can, sometimes every day. Now I trust him completely and he trusts me. We've accomplished many things together, like I can stand up on him galloping!! I LOVE MY HORSE!! <3

96% of teens won't stand up for God. I am one of the 4% that will.

hey alissa and gator!!
I BELIEVE…..I don't have a good reason to be grouchy-Jesus loves me, gave His life for me, and showers me daily with blessings.

Hot hot hot. That's what it's been for the past week. We went swimming yesterday though, whew did that feel good!!

I gave Kayla a riding lesson yesterday morning. She can post pretty good off the lunge, and I think she could canter, but she didn't want to. We'll have to work on that…..

I rode Teusday with the English saddle. Trotted and cantered for long periods of time to get her in shape. Do you have any advice on anything i should do after the ride? Beside hosing her down. I was reading my HI again and it had an article in there. Btw, congrats Susan and Donna Lee for being in Horse Illustrated. What a surprise seeing some familiar names in my first issue!!

Then in the evening I just went out to the horses. They had just finished their hay and were just standing there half dozing. So peaceful. I brushed them both really good.
Borrowed a great looking book on ground work by Lesley Bailey. Can't wait to try some exercises out.

How was your week so far? I want to hear all about it!!

Happy Trails-Love you all.

Hey Alissa, left a vote and love your new pic :!)

I BELIEVE....I can find help, reassurance of God's love, and prayers in the wonderful book of Psalms. Read a chapter today, it will encourage you and some chapters make you want to sing and shout for JOY!!

So sorry, I haven't been on for the past week....things have been a little hectic. I'll try to be on faithfully from now on!!

TUES.-Worked in the morn., then rode about an hour in the evening. I got to watch a hot-air balloon land in the nearby field. I was so proud of my girl, she didn't even look twice.

WED.-My 15th birthday!!!! Our family and my friend's family went swimming in the creek. It was so much fun. For my b-day gift I got an amazing blue Canon camera. I actually used my own money to buy it, but it came early, so they just wrapped it up!

THURS.-Went riding with Alissa (Gator's owner-236219) in the evening. Then I went home with her and showed her how to get around HC a little better.

FRI.-Rode again in the evening for about an hour and a half...Wow I really used her this week!!

MON.-another riding lesson-worked on trotting and posting again. Sweet Pea was a little hyper because I gave her grain in the morning. She started a little too fast with Felicia. She panicked and then she didn't want to trot. But we did jog a little, but she was still scared. Any advice?

So there was my week. Please know that I read and ENJOY every single blog on my page, but I hardly have time to reply sometimes. Don't stop blogging!!

~~Hugs and Prayers, Happy Trails~~

Hi Alissa
Haven't seen Bart and Dolly in a while, but will see them tomorrow. Really going to start to work them in the round pen to get the weight from the grass they eat down. They are getting fairly plump.

did you know that model horses have a huge following and they host horse shows for them just like real horses? some of it is held live and some online. nice for kids or hobbyist that can't keep a real horse. just for fun, i posted 2 model horses at the bottom of my page. one a trail horse and the other a vanner. i believe the hotd yesterday was a model. :)

Hi Gator, here's a vote for ya. Sorry I didn't get to vote sooner, but we were away at a horse show for 4 days. We're back from the horse show and it was a great time. Both of my yella's were stars! Paige did awesome in Halter and in Showmanship. I even placed 2nd twice under two judges in a horsemanship class of 9! Paige got her first AQHA halter points this weekend. And Indy was a star, he did very well for me in halter. And his two little girls did fantastic. Ella did Small Fry Showmanship and got a total of 4 second place ribbons with him. Emily did Lead Line and got two 3 firsts and one second on him. Plus I'll be adding a picture of Indy and Ella in showmahship tomorrow. Don't have time tonight. too tired from 4 days of none stop going. Good night all, Marion and the blondies.

Come visit me, Nuttin But Good. Thanks Mom, Indy, H.T. #9100!, R.I.P. Hi Tech Image, #13500 THX Mom, Paige & Indy & MWS Zippn By Indy, Tkx Bella Boo of DC #17600!.

leaving a TGIF vote along with a big thank you for our HOTD honor today! sing got some extra hay this morning and tonight she'll get some carrots, too. she's not so big on apples. does gator like one more than another? if i bite the apple or cut it up she usually will eat it but she'll never bite it otherwise.

Enjoy your day in the spotlight:)

Happy Friday everyone....
Today's rescue story is about a mare named Lavi. Saw that name and had to send this story:)
I can't remember a time when I didn't love horses. But growing up,my parents could never afford one. For something to do in my "more mature years" I started volunteering at a Morgan horse breeding farm. When Whippoorwill Lavalier was returned to her original home, it was love at first sight for me. She was given to me, and after taking ownership, I discovered that she was to be euthanized due to a hind leg nerve problem. Lavi turned 21 this year, and has quite the personality! She's been all mine and is the light of my life. I'm living proof that a little girl's dreams do come true.

i went to ride sing today and while grooming discovered she'd thrown a shoe. i just rode her bareback at walk and practiced neck reining. farrier never called back to say when he can come replace it. it must be in the mud someplace.
